Insistence on team work the change Homeboyz needed, says Muyoti

Nicholas Muyoti has transformed Kakamega Homeboyz since taking charge at the team at the start of February, and he further made a case for his impact at the side after leading it to a 1 – 0 win over four – time champions Ulinzi Stars on Wednesday 3 April.

The coach has been in charge for six matches now, winning four, drawing one and losing one. The Kakamega based side is now in the top five and he says the only change he injected was psychological.

Crucially, the team has improved a lot in terms of attack, scoring in each of its matches so far under him.

Functional unit

“I didn’t change much; there was already a good and functional unit here so I have only been emphasizing on team work and group discipline. It has worked wonders in terms of style of play and team spirit. I am happy at the input I am seeing,” he told Soka.

The coach, reacting to the win over Ulinzi, admitted that it was not an easy outing but lauded his charges for making use of their chance.

“It was not an easy match; Ulinzi Stars gave us a run for our money, and they had a number of good chances but they didn’t use them. We made use of ours and that is what made the difference,” he added.


Moses Mudavadi scored the only goal of the game, in the 68th minute, capping a good outing for the longest serving player at the team, and Muyoti was full of praise for him as well.

“Mudavadi was exceptional in the game, just as he has been in the previous matches. We missed him against Bandari in Mombasa but I am happy that he is back with a bang,” Muyoti noted.

Next for Muyoti is another home match, against Chemelil Sugar at the Bukhungu Stadium on Sunday 7 April.
